Storyline

10-year-old Manu from Madrid arrives in Murcia in southern Spain surrounded by a lush landscape by the sea. He is sent by his parents who are trying to sort out a marital separation.

The eccentric collection of family members includes a sharp-as-nails grandfather, uncle Juan, a heartsick watercolor painter and poet, uncle Fernando, a bisexual whose lover has just ended their affair to marry a woman, and young cousin Fuensanta who gives him his first taste of puppy love.

Ten-year-old Manu spends Summer with his Grandparents, while his parents are going through a divorce.
18 February 1999 | by Claus-6See all my reviews

Charming tale of a lively family in a big house. Sort of 'Fanny and Alexander' meets 'House of the Spirits'. Paco Rabal gives a wonderful performance as the old Grand-father.
